    Hello guys!

    I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news! I love Windows Mobile (duh) but on my Lumi 950XL - the front facing/Rear Camera isn't working ONLY while using Skype!

    Both the cameras are working fine independently.

    But on Skype, it just won't read.

    Here's what I have done so far to make it work:

    1. Check the App permissions
    2. (Within Skype app) Default Camera under Audio/Video settings
    3. Camera Settings - Check which app will use this service

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks a ton!

    To be honest, it's the Skype app that needs to be updated and the mobile app hasn't been updated to even support the return of proper presense controls like the desktop client has been.

    I found that if you rotate the screen, the camera then works. You can rotate it back to the original position and it will keep on working too.

    Unfortunately, this is a dying platform, I have no hope that anything will be fixed anymore, so it's time to move on.

    Skype cameras work fine on both my 950xl;s on latest build . I always hold them in landscape orientation to get the best view when using Skype video calls.
